Chris Martin of Coldplay performs at The O2 Arena on Feb. 24, 2016 in London.

Coldplay can't stop honoring Prince, and on Wednesday night at a show in Copenhagen, they roped in British singer Lianne La Havas to give them a hand. "This may be something you don't know, but this is our favorite Prince song," singer Chris Martin told the crowd by way of introducing "Sometimes It Snows in April," from the Purple One's 1986 Parade album. 

Martin and La Havas played a hushed, reverent version of the song, with just La Havas' gently picked acoustic guitar and their hushed voices joining together on the chorus, "Sometimes it snows in April/ Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad/ Sometimes I wish that life was never ending/ All good things they say, never last."

This isn't the first time Coldplay tipped their hat to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist who died on April 21 of an opiate overdose. Back in April, Martin played "Raspberry Beret" with a group of eighth graders at a pediatric cancer benefit.
